In a statement ahead of the Nov 14 release of results for the first half, the group said its order book currently stands at 3.5 bln stg.
Turning to divisional performances, the group said VT Communications has achieved strong revenue growth in the first half and has recently been awarded an initial 5 year contract with

VT Shipbuilding continues to make good progress on production of the Royal Navy's Type 45 destroyers.
The Royal Navy Offshore Patrol Vessel (Helicopter), HMS Clyde, is set to be deployed to the Falkland Islands next Spring. Negotiations with the Sultanate of Oman for the construction of three Ocean Patrol Vessels continue to progress, with contract completion expected before the end of 2006, the group added.
